It’s also the first to feature 144Hz refresh rate on the display – a 100% sRGB IPS Panel with G-Sync technology. You also get 32GB or 64GB of RAM, and a combination of up to a 2TB HDD and up to a 512GB SSD.


ASUS RGB Aura Sync is now incorporated with each individual backlit key, so you can sync it with other compatible devices. There’s also a new 12V fan for increased fan speed and 45% improved airflow, combined with thicker fins for better air flow resistance.
